Our New York false arrest lawyers have handled many false arrest cases. Under the United States Constitution and the New York Constitution, the police may not arrest a person without probable cause for such the arrest. This means that a police officer must have information that would lead a reasonable person who possesses the same official expertise as the officer to conclude that the person being arrested has committed or is about to commit a crime, whether in the police officer’s presence or otherwise.
If you were falsely arrested, you are entitled to recover compensation for the experience and time you spent incarcerated. Call our experienced New York false arrest attorneys for a free consultation.
